    Shea butter and coconut oil from Whole Foods. Mix at 5:1 ratio, melt in the microwave, cool in the freezer to prevent graininess. For $15 I have enough moisturizer to last a year or two.

    My guy is black - no brown around the muzzle, sheds black but quickly fades to bay areas on back and flanks.
